20200426_115427It’s here at the Great Bay in Durham where many of the rivers and streams of southeastern New Hampshire end up. This bay is an tidal estuary that resides ten miles inland from the Atlantic Coast, being one of the farthest natural estuaries from the ocean.

20190915_150130Pawtuckaway State Park is located in Nottingham New Hampshire. There are several trails to take in this 5000 acre preserve, one being Boulder Trail. If one takes a look at the satellite image of Pawtuckaway’ s Mountain range, you can see a circular formation called a ring dyke made by an ancient volcano about 130 million years ago. During the Ice Age, approximately 18,000 years ago, a mile high ice sheet sat on top of this area and moved these gigantic rocks as it melted, known as glacial erratics. Now we have boulders resting amongst trees in a beautiful forest for people to climb and admire.
